Abstract: Since its firs description in 1895 by Von Kalden, Gottschalk in 1899 and Mayer in 1903, only 150 cases of struma ovarii were reported in the medical literature. Its account for 1% of all ovarian tumors, less than 5% of mature teratoma and most are benign, only 5 to 10% are malignant. We report a case of unilateral monodermal mature teratoma, struma ovarii type, in a 43-years old patient with benign ascites.Total hysterectomy with bilateral oophoro-salphingectomy was preformed. Microscopy showed in right ovary – monodermal mature teratoma, struma ovarii type, ascites liquid without atypical cells. No symptoms of hyperthyroidism were observed, including the post-operative period.Struma ovarii is a rare type of teratomas, difficult to identify without histopathological examination. Surgery is the only treatment because can cause symptoms of pelvic mass and compression, also malignant alteration is possible.
